Default Transifex update - intltool requirement (was: Need a Sysadmin Greeter)

Can you ask tx upstream why they need that level of intltool, and if there is a way to work around it?

If the package may not reach RHEL5 updates-testing, I guess we may use the fedora-admin repo for this exception.

Is it possible?

IIRC it was to support translation contexts.

http://help.transifex.net/technical/releases/0.8.html#lotte-improvements

Transifex 1.0 no longer has this requirement.

I guess this could be done.

/me coming into this without having read everything before it....

I think that we do this already::
http://infrastructure.fedoraproject.org/el/5/i386/intltool-0.40.5-1.i386.rpm

Do we just need to update that package to a newer version?

Thank you Toshio!
That's what I needed.

How do I enable that repo?
What's the --enablerepo name I must use?

> Do we just need to update that package to a newer version?

No, it will not be necessary.

Thank you.

kind regards
